7 Crazy Pet Products
Because who doesn’t want to spoil their furry best friend?
-The Betty Editors
We think of them as our best friends — and, in some cases, our children. We take them to the salon (also known as the groomer), we stay with them in hotels, and we buy an extra seat for them on the plane, right next to us. But for most of us, there’s a limit! Check out these truly silly pet products.
We never leave the house without the proper eyewear, so maybe we’ve been neglecting our poor pooch’s eyesight this entire time. Doesn’t your dog need UV coated, shatterproof, anti-fog goggles? Of course he does. Besides, he’ll look like Snoopy playing the Red Baron. $19.25, doggles.com
2. SnoreStop for Pets
We’ve all been there: Your head hits the pillow and five minutes later you wake up to the thundering snores of your mate — or your pet. These quick-dissolving tablets or oral spray are said to rid your pet of his snoring problem. Too bad they won’t work on your significant other. $8.99, snorestopforpets.com
If you think your dog or cat has an inner Hell’s Angel itching to get out, you could get him this temporary tattoo, applied with a soft rubber stamp, and show the world he’s Bad to the Bone. Better-behaved pets might be more interested in the Lil’ Angel tag. $6 pettattoos.com
These bowls start playing your 10- second, pre-recorded voice message as soon as your pet chows down. Either he’ll be comforted by your voice, or assume you’ve taken up residence beneath the kibbles and bits. $19.87, amazon.com
5. Goldfish Walker
Face it — your goldfish isn’t getting out enough. Take him for a stroll in his bowl with this gadget. Just keep him away from any cats… and seafood restaurants. Not yet available, wired.com
6. Dog Bikinis
She wore an itsy bitsy teeny-weeny yellow polka-dot bikini — hopefully, for the very last time. If not, though, there’s a Stars and Stripes bikini available for July 4th pool parties. We’re sure Paris Hilton has already ordered hers. $24.95, mypethaven.com
7. Pina Colada Dog Shampoo
Because every dog wants to smell like a tropical drink. $5.99, dog.com
